What is a httpOnly cookie?

HTTP cookies can be created in two ways: either in the HTTP layer, on in the application layer in the DOM using JavaScript. And after they are created, some cookies can be accessed from either layer, depending on the application requirements.

HTTP cookies can be created in a web browser either by the Set-Cookie header in a HTTP response or using JavaScript using the document.cookie property. An example from JavaScript console:

> document.cookie
"cookieconsent_status=dismiss; test_cookie=true"
The same cookie can be set using a HTTP response header:

Set-Cookie: cookieconsent_status=dismiss; test_cookie=true
This gives application developers great flexibility in customizing the application behavior to match user preferences — for example, if an user indicated a preference to see the website in French language, the application can set a cookie language=french which the browser will send in all subsequent requests. Upon receiving the cookie, the application will then display content in appropriate language, always returning what the user has chosen to see. The cookie can be read from either the HTTP session (Cookie request header), which is what most server-side applications would do, or client-side using JavaScript, a mode preferred by most AJAX JavaScript-based applications.

Inspirational Thoughts

"Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty and industry. Don't take too much advice — keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world" - Noah Porter
